Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott | Arsenal & England Wonderkid

Theo Walcott’s recovery seems to be on track. The 25-year old forward is all set to be back for his team Arsenal at the start of the 2014-15 Season.

Walcott had got injured severely while representing the Gunners in a FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year. Not only did that injury rule him out of the remaining part of the Premier League, it also ensured that he wouldn’t feature for the Three Lions in the FIFA World Cup 2014.

Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger had to work hard in order to lift the FA Cup as they defeated Hull City in a dramatic match which saw both teams scoring twice which forced the encounter to go into added time and a late goal from Aaron Ramsey gave his side the precious triumph.

Wenger and Arsenal were going through a significantly long period of time that saw them being unable of securing any major piece of silverware in over 7 years but this came to an end and Wenger revealed just how important it was for him and his players on winning the FA Cup.

When Theo Walcott had got injured and had been sidelined for the rest of the season at the start of this year, very few people would have thought that it would take the sting out of Arsenal. Yes, it was believed to be a big blow, but, not a season changing blow, that’s for sure, but, it did have a big impact on the performances of the Gunners. They completely lost their way.

It has been over 6 years since Arsene Wenger has managed to secure any major titles with Arsenal and because of his lack of silverware, the French tactician is under a lot of criticism. Some fans even want him out of the club as they don’t have faith in him.

Wenger endured his 1,000th match in charge of Arsenal a few weeks ago when they played against Chelsea and suffered a disappointing 6-0 defeat against the team of Jose Mourinho.

Arsene Wenger claimed that despite having to cope the rest of the season without Theo Walcott, the long-term future of the player is very positive and suggested his fans not to expect him to be ready for the 2014 World Cup as his injury is already confirmed to leave him out of action for the worldwide event.

Theo Walcott came back from an injury not too long ago and ever since completing his recovery, the English winger is coming back into the pitch in full force as he scored twice against West Ham United and in Arsenal’s match against Newcastle United, Walcott provided the assist for the only goal of the match as the team guided by Arsene Wenger snatched all 3 points.

Theo Walcott will not be able to feature for Arsenal for the next couple of weeks as he is still trying to recover completely from the surgery that he had gone through last month.

The English forward had started light training recently and he was expected to be one of the substitutes in the upcoming Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund, but, that wasn’t the case to be. Yesterday, he felt the pain in his abdomen again and the medical team decided that he needed to be on the sidelines for a bit more time.

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has revealed the last three weeks of his contract wrangle with the club last season were easily the most stressful as well as pressurized moment of his life.

The winger cum striker had a very productive season last term for the Gunners, scoring 21 goals in all competitions for the club and finishing as the club’s top scorer as well and it was arguably the most successful season he has had in North London since his move to the club from Southampton.

Theo Walcott has assured the English fans that the Three Lions will eventually be able to make it to the World Cup 2014 finals which will take place in Brazil.

England’s qualifying group is H. They are at no. 2 in the points table of that group. They have played 6 matches and secured 12 points which is 2 less than the points tally of the table toppers Montenegro.

Only one team from the group will make it to the finals. So, the Three Lions need to raise the standard of their performance in their remaining 4 World Cup qualifying games.

The German international Thomas Müller has said that the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger should not take the German opposition Bayern Munich lightly in the two sides face each other in the last 16 stage of the Champions League.
